CityJet recruitment drive

Another ten trainee pilots are being sought by Irish regional carrier CityJet for entry into its “Climb High” mentored training programme managed by the CAE Oxford Aviation Academy.

The two partners say they are seeking “highly-motivated candidates aspiring to rise as professional pilots within one of Europe’s fastest-growing airlines”. Successful candidates will have CAE training and the opportunity to join CityJet as first officers.

Selected cadets will complete an Integrated ATPL training course at CAE Oxford Aviation academies in Oxford and Arizona with a view to joining a fleet including the 90-seat Bombardier CRJ-900, 98-seat Superjet SSJ100 and 95-seat Avro RJ85.

CityJet operates crew bases in Amsterdam, Brussels, Copenhagen, Dublin, Helsinki, London, Paris, Stockholm, Tallinn and Vilnius.

General manager flight operations Robert Campbell Smith, said: “Our mentored cadet pilot programme provides the starting point for an exciting career path as CityJet continues to expand, particularly on our wet-lease operations.

“With three aircraft types providing opportunities throughout our extensive European pilot bases, this is an exciting time to be joining our growing airline and we look forward to welcoming new recruits to our cadet programme later this year.”
